I understand, but I'm mostly interested in using sound applications on 
Linux that can handle the Unix stdin/out mechanism. Maybe with cygwin it 
would be possible to do the same on Windows. It would work on MacOSX.
Maybe streaming throught stdin/out is a bad idea... Any opinions?

Cstream is a general purpose streaming tool. We could add translation 
routines from the streamin/out~ formats to RAW or WAV.

But is there some sort of standard audio streaming protocol out there?
